Just like this, day after day
Just like this, smoking
I’m burning time
Year after year

Won’t keep thinking about yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
Also won’t wait for tomorrow
Getting through today

Reflect from every day’s experience
Sing every day’s joy and sorrow
Drink a cup of coffee without sugar
Taste many flavors (within)

Maybe there are tears
Maybe there will be regret
Maybe this is what makes it perfect
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Just like this, day after day
Just like this, staring into space
I’m enjoying time
Year after year

It’s too late to wait for yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
It’s also too late to wait for tomorrow
Got through today

This moment’s experience
This moment’s joy and sorrow
This cup of coffee without sugar
Taste even more flavors (within)

Because there are tears
Because there’ll be regrets
Because it’s like this, it can be called beautiful
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Title: 无糖的咖啡
Artist: 杨乐
Link: https://youtu.be/T8awA80x-XY
Translation: https://www.notion.so/ef6127a3248d475b966584daacb7f288

Chinese lyrics

就这样一天天
就这样抽着烟
我燃烧着时间
一年一年

不再去想昨天
今天很快是从前
也不再等明天
过着今天

读每天的体会
唱每天的喜与悲
喝一杯无糖的咖啡
品出许多的滋味

也许有眼泪
也许要后悔
也许这样才完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

就这样一天天
就这样发着呆
我享受着时间
一年一年

来不及等昨天
今天很快是从前
也来不及等明天
过了今天

这一刻的体会
这一刻的喜与悲
这一杯无糖的咖啡
品出更多的滋味

因为有眼泪
因为要后悔
因为这样叫完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

I think I should calm down to think about some words
I think I should calm down to walk a path
I think I should calm down to read a book
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

I think I should calm down to sleep a spell
I think I should calm down to think about someone
I think I should calm down to forget those things
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

When everything starts to calm down
Calm enough for me to hear a composed and quiet heartbeat
Calm like clouds
Calm like air
Calmly and gradually I get used to it

Chinese lyrics

我想应该静下来想一些话
我想应该静下来走一段路
我想应该静下来看一本书
我只想静下来反省自己

我想应该静下来睡一个觉
我想应该静下来想一个人
我想静下来忘掉那些事情
我只想静下来反省自己

当一切都开始静下来的时候
静的可以让我听到平和安静的心跳
静的象云
静的象空气
静静的我开始渐渐的适应

Clouds, just like wandering minstrels
Singing the wind’s song, spitting the rain’s saliva
Birds, forgot how to fly
Anyway, being in a cage isn’t tiring, can sleep soundly

Turn off cell phone, activate insect’s antennae
Let us perceive this world

Right now, close your friend feed
Close your eyes, and your mouth
Ears, can probe orientation
Let us slowly search for the distant place

Reindeer eats that lichen ah
It can’t come out of the forest ah

Information overload is like carbon in the air
Am I engaging too many senses (at once)?
Invite “Silence” on a date
Use insect’s antennae to chat with her

The ink on the page is deeper than that on a page
The music on a live stage is more real than that from earphones
After we meet in person, give me your time, ok?
After returning home, (use our cell phones to) keep in touch

Use insect’s antennae to look far afield
Use insect’s antennae to perceive this world, ok? Heh heh.

Title: 虫的触角。
Artist: 诺尔曼

Translation: https://www.notion.so/b956edac59c14645b6abe10f7de2ae3e

Chinese lyrics

云儿 就像吟游诗人
唱着风的歌,吐着雨的口水
鸟儿 忘记了怎么飞
反正在笼中不累,可以安睡

关上手机,开启虫的触角
让我们感知这世界吧

现在 关上你的朋友圈
闭上你的眼睛 还有嘴
耳朵 可以探测方向
让我们逐渐 去寻觅远方

驯鹿是吃那苔藓的啊
它从森林中出不来呀

信息多的像空中的碳(氧化合物)
我是否运行着太多感官?
邀请“静静”来个约会吧
用虫的触角与她交谈

书上的墨比屏幕更深
现场的音乐比耳机更真
相见后时间给我可以吗?
回家后再低头联络吧

用虫的触角去遥望吧
用虫的触角去感知这世界,好吗? 呵呵

Tonight we’re gonna relax
Go to the underground pub, entire body is carefree
Men and women drinking, dancing, singing
There’s black, white, yellow, and green, like a United Nations

Rock ‘n’ roll, one song after another
Rocking to the point where no one knows what day it is
Smoke wafts everywhere, nonstop joyous laughter
Can hear Chinese, English, French, German, as well as Spanish

The TVs on the walls are all showing MTV
Sometimes the DJ will play some cool songs
Because music is a wondrous kind of thing
It’ll make you cry, laugh, dance, scream til you’re old

The bigger and packed the crowd is, the more exciting
Scan front and back, left and right, up and down, it’s a happy scene
All night slowly indulging to your heart’s content
Who cares if you’re sitting, standing, leaning, lying down, or floating

This world is so wonderful
Life is good, so many sensations
This world is so wonderful
Having money is good, don’t lack for anything

Tonight we’re gonna relax
Go to the underground pub, entire body is carefree
Men and women drinking, dancing, singing
There’s black, white, yellow, and green, like a United Nations

This world is so wonderful
Life is good, so many sensations
This world is so wonderful
Having money is good, don’t lack for anything

Chinese lyrics

今天晚上我们要来轻松
走到那地下室的pub,全身都舒畅
男男女女喝酒跳舞唱歌
有黑的白的黄的绿的,像个联合国

Rock 'n' roll 一首接一首
摇得所有人都忘了今夕是何夕
烟雾迷漫,欢笑声不断
有中文英文法文德文还有西班牙文

墙上电视都是MTV
有时候DJ常会放些屌的歌来听
因为音乐是种奇妙的东西
会让你又哭又笑又跳又叫high到老

总是人多拥挤越兴奋
放眼前后左右上下一幅愉悦景象
长夜漫漫尽情地放纵
谁管你坐着站着趴着躺着或是在飘着

这个世界真是多美好
活着真好,感觉真不少
这个世界真是多美好
有钱真好,什么都不少

今天晚上我们要来轻松
走到那地下室的pub,全身都舒畅
男男女女喝酒跳舞唱歌
有黑的白的黄的绿的像个联合国

这个世界真是多美好
活着真好,感觉真不少
这个世界真是多美好
有钱真好,什么都不少

Sun hasn’t risen yet, I open my eyes
Good morning, it’s now 6 AM
Change clothes, brush teeth, wash face, put on eyeliner
But forgot to eat breakfast

With great effort
Caught this subway train
After getting off the train
Realize that I’ve almost been squished into meat stuffing
Look down and check my wristwatch
I won’t be late
But must still add a little speed
Jog for a little while
Get through today, there’s no difference from yesterday

I would like to
Get home a bit earlier
To be not too tired
Stroke my guitar strings for a bit
Who could guess
After eating dinner it’s already 9
I want to jog 2 laps
To destroy my love handles

They say
You’d best do this and that
It should be like this and that
Go with the flow all the way to the end
But I don’t want to be facing life and saying sorry
Dadadida dadada
Saying sorry, didada dididi
Saying sorry

Chinese lyrics

天还没亮,我睁开双眼
早晨好,现在是上午的六点
换衣服,刷刷牙,洗洗脸,画了眼线
却忘了吃早点

好不容易
赶上了 这趟地铁
下车后
发现自己 快被挤成肉馅
低头看了 一下手表
还不会迟到
但还是要 加快速度
来一段小跑
过了今天 和昨天没差别

我想要
到家能够早些
没有太多疲倦
拨一拨我吉他弦
谁知道
吃完饭已九点
我想慢跑两圈
消灭我的游泳圈

他们说
你最该是怎样
就应该是怎样
顺其自然到终点
可我不想 对着生活 说着抱歉
哒哒滴哒 哒啦哒
说着抱歉 滴哒哒 滴滴滴
说着抱歉

Dark clouds piled high in the sky
Groups of people walking blindly
Cling to momentary bursts of joy
Fill the void inside the heart
Use an invisible web
To link the world
Be consoled, be addicted

Flattering and fawning words
They always like to vie for social dominance
An environment where morals decline by the day
Corroding young souls

Sensationalist news
Blind adoration
False and exaggerated data
To manufacture topics
Manufacture topics

I’ve become a bird in a cage
Shed all the pride I once had
Saying things I don’t believe
Spare no effort to win their favor

Without realizing it I’ve become lonely and forlorn
Lonely and forlorn
But I’m powerless, hard to struggle free
This cage with an iron lock, an endless black hole

Please release me
Please discard me
Please kill me, dear master
Grant me my freedom
Please let me escape
Break free from this cage
Escape from this black hole

Please release me
Please discard me
Please kill me
Dear master

Please forgive me
Please guide me
Please help me attain my goal
Most beloved intimate

Smile
Kill me
Devour me

Dark clouds piled high in the sky
Groups of people walking blindly
Cling to momentary bursts of joy
Fill the void inside the heart

Chinese lyrics

乌云堆积的天空
盲目行走的人群
贪恋片刻的欢愉
填补内心的空虚
用一张无形的网
连接世界
慰藉,沉迷

阿谀奉承的话语
他们总喜欢相互攀比
世风日下的环境
侵蚀着幼小的心灵

哗众取宠的新闻
盲目崇拜
虚假夸张的数据
来制造话题
制造话题

我成为了笼中鸟
卸下往日所有的骄傲
说着违心的话语
极力讨好他们欢心

不知不觉我变得
孤寂落寞
却无能为力,难以挣脱
这铁锁牢笼,无尽的黑洞

请放过我吧
请丢弃我吧
请杀死我吧,亲爱的主人
赐予我自由吧
请让我逃离吧
挣脱这座牢笼
逃离这黑洞

请放过我吧
请丢弃我吧
请杀死我吧
亲爱的主人

请原谅我吧
请指引我吧
请成全我吧
至爱的亲人

微笑
杀死我吧
吞食我吧

乌云堆积的天空
盲目行走的人群
贪恋片刻的欢愉
填补内心的空虚

Set the time forward one hour, because summer has arrived
Set the time back one hour, because summer has gone
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know
Set the time forward one hour, I can sleep earlier
Set the time back one hour, I should wear thicker clothes
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know

No air conditioner, no cell phone, no DVD
At that time I had no idea what land ownership was
Summer rain falls on my chest
Mama says don’t catch a cold, run back home to study
Didn’t understand being poor, didn’t understand the ways of the world, didn’t understand love
At that time the friends by my side were everything
So-called dreams, anyway it’s not what I do for a living
Seems like I lost myself while living life

Set the time forward one hour, because summer has arrived
Set the time back one hour, because summer has gone
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know
Set the time forward one hour, I can sleep earlier
Set the time back one hour, I should wear thicker clothes
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know

From one side it looks like a ridge, from another side it looks like a peak, distance and height are all different
Cannot see the true face of Mt Lu, because I’m standing on the mountain
From one side it looks like a ridge, from another side it looks like a peak, distance and height are all different
Cannot see the true face of Mt Lu, because I’m standing on the mountain

Set the time forward one hour, because summer has arrived
Set the time back one hour, because summer has gone
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know
Set the time forward one hour, I can sleep earlier
Set the time back one hour, I should wear thicker clothes
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know

Chinese lyrics

把时间调快一小时,因为夏天到了
把时间调慢一小时,因为夏天走了
可是这事儿,后来为什么不弄了
你问我,我哪儿知道啊
把时间调快一小时,我可以早睡啦
把时间调慢一小时,该添厚衣服啦
可是这事儿,后来为什么不弄了
你问我,我哪儿知道啊

没有空调,没有手机,没DVD
那时候 根本不知道房产是什么东西
夏天的雨打在我胸口
妈妈说别感冒了,快回家复习
不懂没钱,不懂世故,不懂爱情
那时候 身边儿的朋友就是我的唯一
所谓梦想 反正不是现在这行儿
好像活着活着 就活没了自己

把时间调快一小时,因为夏天到了
把时间调慢一小时,因为夏天走了
可是这事儿,后来为什么不弄了
你问我,我哪儿知道啊
把时间调快一小时,我可以早睡啦
把时间调慢一小时,该添厚衣服啦
可是这事儿,后来为什么不弄了
你问我,我哪儿知道啊

横看成岭侧成峰,远近高低各不同
不识庐山真面目,只缘身在此山中
横看成岭侧成峰,远近高低各不同
不识庐山真面目,只缘身在此山中

把时间调快一小时,因为夏天到了
把时间调慢一小时,因为夏天走了
可是这事儿,后来为什么不弄了
你问我,我哪儿知道啊
把时间调快一小时,我可以早睡啦
把时间调慢一小时,该添厚衣服啦
可是这事儿,后来为什么不弄了
你问我,我哪儿知道啊

Have you already forgotten me?
I quietly left from the deep recesses of your memory
We’ve both changed our numbers
Perhaps we’ve lost touch

Actually it’s a been a really really long time since
I picked up the phone to call you
It’s just that I occasionally think of
The years we spent together

Underneath that tree where we buried the glass bottle
The hidden secret that I very much want to tell you
Actually I’ve wanted to write a letter this whole time
Don’t know where to mail it to

I’m walking by myself on the street
There’s a familiar silhouette
Want to approach but I can’t be sure
In an instant it disappears from my vision

How many people like you will I encounter in this lifetime?
Neither close nor distant, stars in the night sky
If some day I run into you on some corner
I’ll embrace you

Lalala…

After many years I returned to the tree
Unfortunately, things were already completely changed

Chinese lyrics

你是否已忘记了我
悄悄离去 从记忆深处
彼此都换了号码
我们或许失去了联系

其实我也好久好久
没拿起电话要打给你
只是偶尔还会想起
与你共同度过的年纪

那一棵树下我们埋的玻璃瓶
藏的秘密 好想告诉你
其实我一直都想写封信
不知道 要寄去哪里

我独自在街上走着
有一个熟悉背影
想上前又不敢确定
一转眼又消失在视野里

一生会遇到多少个这样的你
若即若离,夜空的星
如果某一天在某个路口相遇
我会拥抱你

Lalala…

过了多少年我又回到了树下
只可惜,已今非昔比

I guess you won’t be coming back tonight either
Time starts to get slower and slower
Got on the train going in the opposite direction of your home
Going towards a dark night that I'm not familiar with

Don’t fear the dark
When alone, embrace the darkness
Maybe I’ll
Look back fondly on the beautiful purity of blooming love
No matter how dark the night, at least loneliness will keep me company
Don’t fear the dark, maybe what I fear is not being able to see

Just treat it as you playing a small prank
Can’t bear to turn off this light
Perfume has left an impression on the unoccupied pillow
Reminds me I should’ve rehearsed being lonely long ago

Don’t fear the dark
When alone, embrace the darkness
Maybe I’ll
Look back fondly on the beautiful purity of blooming love
No matter how dark the night, don't want to fool myself into thinking it can console me
Don’t fear the dark, maybe what I fear is not being able to see

Close my eyes, as if I could instantly learn
Don’t fear the dark, I'd rather cry while thinking of you

Chinese lyrics

我猜你今晚又不会回来
时间也开始越走越慢
搭上往你家的反方向列车
驶向我所不知的夜深

别怕黑
一个人的时候就拥抱夜
也许会
怀念爱情当初美的纯粹
夜再黑,至少有寂寞能相陪
别怕黑,或许怕的是看不见

就当作是你开的小小玩笑
这一盏灯舍不得关掉
香水还在空枕上残留了肤触
提醒我早该练习孤独

别怕黑
一个人的时候就拥抱夜
也许会
怀念爱情当初美的纯粹
夜再黑,不想用至少来安慰
别怕黑,或许怕的是看不见

闭上眼,难道就能瞬间学会
别怕黑,我宁愿想着你流泪

Small town builds a pedestrian bridge
To residents accustomed to not having a crosswalk
A road that can be crossed in 2 seconds
Why must one ascend stairs that take dozens of steps
Walk down a corridor of more than 10 meters
Then choose an exit
Descend down a spiral staircase to the other side of the street
That really wastes time
Wastes physical energy, wastes emotions
Wastes youth, wastes ink
Wastes natural gas, wastes renminbi
Wastes food, wastes public resources

Very small pedestrian bridge
Was meant to let people stand even
A little bit high high high high high high higher
But in actuality a very small pedestrian bridge just makes
A very small town even smaller
Even smaller even smaller, really quite small
Just as small as a pea
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Oh
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Oh
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Ah
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Impossible
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it

Therefore (the residents who are) unpretentious, ordinary, hard-working, benevolent
Loving their hometown
Sometimes prone to taking small advantages
Never step onto it
As always, they live in the busy
Giant stream of people
Wake up, have breakfast, go to work
Eat lunch, take a siesta
Wake up, play cards, play Dou dizhu
Get off work, pick up kids from school
Eat dinner, go for a stroll and dancing
Greet acquaintances
Go back home, wash face, wash feet, rinse mouth
Go to bed and speak quietly for a while

Title: 小镇天桥
Artist: 张若水
Link: https://youtu.be/N880ge9W8Zg
Translation: https://www.notion.so/73b242dcbe1c4df3b5ea2bc227a4ead7

Chinese lyrics

小城镇修起了天桥
对于习惯了 没有斑马线的居民们来说
两秒钟就可以穿过的马路
何必要先登上几十步台阶
走过十多米走廊
再选择一个出口
沿着螺旋梯下到街对面
那多浪费时间
浪费体力,浪费感情
浪费青春,浪费墨水
浪费天然气,浪费人民币
浪费粮食,浪费公共资源

小小的天桥
本可以让人们站得再
高高高高高高高高一点
但实际上小小的天桥只会让
小小的城镇更小
更小更小,真的好小
只有豌豆儿那么小
近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到
哦吼
近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到
哦吼
近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到

近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到
不可能
近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到

所以朴实,平凡,勤劳,善良
热爱家乡
有时候爱贪点小便宜的居民们
从不登上去
依旧生活在忙碌的
巨大人流之中
起来,早饭,上班
午饭,午觉
起来,打牌,抢地主
下班,接小娃儿放学
晚饭,再去散步和跳舞
跟熟人打个招呼
再回家,洗脸,洗脚,漱口
上床说会儿悄悄话

Draw some moonlight for the lonely night sky
Draw myself singing under the moonlight
Draw a large window on the empty house
Also draw a bed

Draw a girl to keep me company
And draw an embroidered quilt
Draw a stove and firewood
We live together

Draw a flock of birds flying around me
Draw green ridges and blue slopes
Draw tranquility and prosperity
Rain droplets drift down over rice paddies

Draw a rainbow you can touch with your hands
The drawing has a starry sky that I decided not to extinguish
Draw an endless, winding, level path
At the end (of the path), we are dreaming

Draw mother in a serene pose
And conflicts that can be wiped away using an eraser
Draw food that is available in all four seasons
A carefree person has no worries

I don’t have an eraser to wipe away arguments
Just a pen for drawing loneliness
The moon in that night sky isn’t shining anymore
There’s just a melancholy child singing
Draw some moonlight for the lonely night sky

为寂寞的夜空画上一个月亮
把我画在那月亮的下面歌唱
为冷清的房子画上一扇大窗
再画上一张床

画一个姑娘陪着我
再画个花边的被窝
画上灶炉与柴火
我们一起生来一起活

画一群鸟儿围着我
再画上绿岭和青坡
画上宁静与祥和
雨点儿在稻田上飘落

画上有你能用手触到的彩虹
画中有我决定不灭的星空
画上弯曲无尽平坦的小路
尽头的人家梦已入

画上母亲安详的姿势
还有橡皮能擦去的争执
画上四季都不愁的粮食
悠闲的人从没心事

我没有擦去争吵的橡皮
只有一只画着孤独的笔
那夜空的月也不再亮
只有个忧郁的孩子在唱
为寂寞的夜空画上一个月亮

Alarm clock already sounded many times, how come you haven’t gotten up?
You said sleep for 5 minutes more, but it’s already been an hour
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Piled up a week’s worth of work, you put it off again and again
Leader is anxious, boss is angry, but you just keep tweeting
Based on your clinical symptoms

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
You’ve gotten fat again, you said you were going to work out, laid down the whole day
This meal doesn’t count, wait until next meal, if you don't eat your fill how can you lose weight?
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can totally diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Can you be saved?
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer
You ask me, but who do I ask?
We’re all late stage procrastination syndrome sufferers

Chinese lyrics

闹钟响了好几遍了你怎么不起床呢
你说再睡个五分钟可已经一钟头了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一礼拜的工作可是你一拖再拖
领导急了老板怒了可你还在玩微博
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
下礼拜就要考试了课本还从没碰过
明天见导师交论文大不了今晚不睡了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以确切诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一个月了没有干净衣服能穿了
房间不是人类住的双脚都没地方搁
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

月底了房租还没交水电费该罚款了
不想做饭不想洗澡电视剧停不下了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
你又胖了说要去健身房可整天躺着
这顿不算下顿再说不吃饱怎么减肥呢
根据您的临床表现
我们可以完全诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

我还有救吗
您是晚期拖延症患者
你问我我问谁呢
我们都是晚期拖延症患者

The only home underneath the pedestrian bridge
He speaks to himself
Why does no one admire his paintings?
Old paintings that were once soaked by rain
Keeping him company in his struggle
His only assets are the sand in his shoes

Old French painter
Painting the one he loves
His tears are punishing him but he doesn’t wipe them
Waits for her to come home, come home
Old French painter
His hands are clenching a cross
Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her

How can he forget her?
Who once wore a snow-white wedding dress for the sake of love
Recalling the words once said under the Eiffel Tower

Old French painter
Painting the one he loves
His tears are punishing him but he doesn’t wipe them
Waits for her to come home, come home
Old French painter
His hands are clenching a cross
Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her

Old French painter
Painting the one he loves
His tears are punishing him but he doesn’t wipe them
Waits for her to come home, come home
Old French painter
His hands are clenching a cross
Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her
Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her

天桥底下唯一的家
他自问自答
怎么没有人欣赏他的画
被雨淋湿过的旧画
陪着他挣扎
身家只剩下鞋里的沙

法国老画家
画着爱的她
眼泪在惩罚都不擦
等她回家,回家
法国老画家
手握着十字架
只想回到拥抱1968年的她

怎么忘了她
曾经为爱穿上雪白色的婚纱
回忆着巴黎铁塔下曾说的话

法国老画家
画着爱的她
眼泪在惩罚都不擦
等她回家,回家
法国老画家
手握着十字架
只想回到拥抱1968年的她

法国老画家
画着爱的她
眼泪在惩罚都不擦
等她回家,回家
法国老画家
手握着十字架
只想回到拥抱1968年的她
只想回到拥抱1968年的她

Wind blows through trees full of leaves
Swaying, swaying
By the river, frogs leap
Between the grasses, crickets chirp
The moon is curved

Curved like a baby’s eyes
Laugh, laugh
Layers and layers of clouds
Like an umbrella being held up
Stars wink

Scarecrow’s general store has closed for the day
Sparrows, sparrows go home now
Tiny wings, pulling on the wind
Don’t be afraid
Wind chimes on the window can talk
Baby is laying their head on a camellia couch
Mama softly sings while her hand pushes the cradle

Sway, sway, sway to grandma’s house
Grandma sews a doudou (undergarment covering chest and abdomen) for the baby
Sway, sway, sway beneath the willow tree
Kitty curls up its tail and falls asleep

Sway, sway, sway to the wooden fence
On the fence grows a circle of morning glories
Sway, sway, sway to the grape trellis
Aiya, grapes are as big as the moon

Wind stops, moon is bright
Leaves cover the window lattice
Tiny crickets, crying ”zhengzheng”
Like the strings of an instrument

Sway, sway, sway to grandma’s house
Grandma sews a doudou (undergarment covering chest and abdomen) for the baby
Sway, sway, sway beneath the willow tree
Kitty curls up its tail and falls asleep

Sway, sway, sway to the wooden fence
On the fence grows a circle of morning glories
Sway, sway, sway to the grape trellis

Aiya, grapes are as big as the moon

Sway, sway, flowers bloom in dreams
Baby extends a hand to touch my cheek
Baby, baby, time is like a white horse
But I hope you won’t grow up
I really hope you don’t grow up

风吹着满树的叶儿
晃呀晃呀
河边蛙儿蹦
草间蛐蛐声
月儿弯呀

弯得像娃娃的眼睛
笑呀笑呀
云儿一层层
好像伞儿撑
星星眨呀

稻草人的杂货铺打烊啦
雀儿雀儿快回家
小翅膀啊,挽着风呀
别害怕
窗子上的风铃会说话
宝宝枕着茶花榻
娘的手儿摇着篮车轻轻唱啊

摇啊摇啊,摇到婆婆家
婆婆缝个兜兜给娃娃
摇啊摇啊,摇到柳树下
小猫卷着尾巴睡着啦

摇啊摇啊,摇到木篱笆
篱笆开满一圈儿牵牛花
摇啊摇啊,摇到葡萄架
哎呀,葡萄月亮一般大

风儿停,月儿明
树叶儿遮窗棂啊
小蛐蛐 叫铮铮
好像那琴弦声

摇啊摇啊,摇到婆婆家
婆婆缝个兜兜给娃娃
摇啊摇啊,摇到柳树下
小猫卷着尾巴睡着啦

摇啊摇啊,摇到木篱笆
篱笆开满一圈儿牵牛花
摇啊摇啊,摇到葡萄架
哎呀 葡萄月亮一般大

摇啊摇,梦里开着花
娃娃伸手摸着我脸颊
娃娃呀 娃娃,时间像白马
我却希望你长不大
我好希望你长不大

Wednesday, second class of the day
A beautiful silhouette enters
She’s not Teacher Liu
Teacher Liu is sick

Her family name is Wang, she tells us
She’s our substitute teacher for the day
Her voice is very pleasant
She’s almost the same age as me

Miss Wang, I love you
I answer all of your questions
I haven’t yet experienced love
I’m not from around here

Miss Wang, I love you
These past days you’ve been in my dreams
Coming and going
Close my eyes, see you everywhere

Next Wednesday, second class of the day
Will Teacher Liu take a rest?
I know it’s not possible
Just want to see you

You're just like my sister
I often write to her
Want to think of you as her
Not logical at all

Miss Wang, I love you
When will you come to my class again
To answer your 100 questions
I’ll study hard
Miss Wang, I love you
Are you also not from around here?
People who left home don’t have it easy, have to rely on themselves

星期三的第二堂课
走进一个美丽的身影
她不是刘老师
刘老师病了

她姓王,她对我们说
今天她给我们代课
她说话很好听
年龄和我差不多

王老师,我爱你
回答你提的所有问题
我还没接触过爱情
我的家在外地

王老师,我爱你
这些天你在我的梦里
走来走去
闭上双眼,到处是你

下星期三的第二堂课
刘老师会不会休息
我知道不可能
只是想见你

你就像我姐姐一样
我经常写信给她
想把你看成她
不合逻辑

王老师,我爱你
你何时再来我的班里
为了你的一百个问题
我要好好学习
王老师,我爱你
你的家是否也在外地
离家的人 活着不易,全靠自己

Every day at 7 I wake up, semi-consciously I exit the dorm
No time to eat breakfast, because I have to go attend those stupid classes
Listen to these college professors, expressionlessly reading from the textbook
I lower my head and I’m also looking at my phone, without realizing it I enter dreamland

Sun is in the sky shining on the school, I’m carrying a bookbag filled with explosives
A flower finds out and smiles at me, a small bird says I’m badass
Fellow students aren’t worthless, tell me who’s worthless
You make me sit in the classroom, if I don’t show up you deduct points, this is how China’s colleges are

Basically, if you don’t attend class you fail it, if you fail it you have to retake it
If you retake it you gotta fucking pay up, a single class costs more than 200
You ask him what’s the point, what I’m learning is useless
He said you should just resign yourself, this is how China’s colleges are

Classmate Xiaohua, classmate Xiaohua
Your ideological stance is utterly wrongheaded
Classmate Xiaohua, classmate Xiaohua
Just go home already, just stop coming to study

每天早上我七点起床,迷迷糊糊我就出了宿舍
没有时间去吃顿早饭 因为我还得去上那些傻逼的课
听这些大学的老师 面无表情得读着课本
我低着头,我还玩着手机,不知不觉就做了个梦

太阳当空照学校,我背着书包装炸药
花儿知道了,他对我笑,小鸟也说我牛逼了
同学少年都不贱,你说到底是谁贱
让我坐到教室,不来你就扣分,这就是中国的大学

话说这不上课你就得挂科,挂了科你就要重修
重修还他妈得交钱,一门课就是二百多
你问他这是为什么,我学的都没用处
他说你就认命吧,这就是中国的大学

小花同学,小花同学
你的思想态度及其的不端正
小花同学,小花同学
你就回家吧,你就别来上学

When I was young
My family had 6 members
Brothers and sisters
I was the youngest

Papa was handsome
Mama was young and pretty
Energetic workers
Kind characters

After the Cultural Revolution
There were 5 left
Papa was falsely charged
Left us early

Mama was helpless
Remarried to another place
Brothers and sisters
Went to the mountains to work in the countryside

From that time on
My family was basically split apart
Brothers and sisters
East west south north

Every holiday
Just well wishes from afar
Well wishes from afar
Well wishes from afar

Many years later
Look back once more
Brothers and sisters
Don’t need to be consoled

We all remember
Papa wants us to be sincere
And also kind
Never change

We remember
Mama wants us to be resolute
And also happy
Even today

We are singing
Papa and mama’s
Favorite song
Resolute, happy
Kind, sincere

We are singing
Papa and mama’s
Favorite song
Sincere, kind
Live happily

小的时候
一家六口
哥哥姐姐
我排在最后

爸爸英俊
妈妈年轻又漂亮
工作积极
为人善良

文革以后
剩下五口
爸爸含冤
走在前头

妈妈无奈
结婚嫁到了外地
哥哥姐姐
上山下乡

从那以后
我的家就算散了
兄弟姐妹
东西南北

每逢过节
只有遥远的祝福
遥远祝福
遥远祝福

多年以后
再度回首
兄弟姐妹
不用安慰

我们都记得
爸爸要我们真诚
还要善良
永远都不能变

我们记得
妈妈要我们坚强
还要快乐
哪怕在今天

我们唱着
爸爸妈妈
最爱唱的歌
坚强,快乐
善良,真诚

我们唱着
爸爸妈妈
最爱唱的歌
真诚,善良
快乐 生活

I know very little about your life
As a child you carried a canvas bookbag to school
Your father told you to work hard
More than half of your life, plain tea, cloth shoes, food coupons

Town gate, town gate, how high is it?
Town gate, town gate, how high is it?
Town gate, town gate, how high is it?
How high is it?

I know very little about your life
From the first time I saw you, you were very very old
How come time runs faster than the first-place runner?
In a flash your teeth all start to fall out

Please gift me a clock that turns in reverse
How great it would be for you to tell me the stories within your wrinkles
I’ll come with you to grow flowers, fish, stroll, feed birds
How great it would be for you to hold my child

Please gift me a clock that turns in reverse
How great it would be to return to the stories within your wrinkles
Go with you back to your hometown, even if it’s far away
Let me know about your life, OK?
Town gate, town gate, how high is it?

城门,城门,几丈高

你的一生我知道的很少
从第一次见你,你就好老好老
怎么时光比第一名还能跑
一晃神你的牙都开始掉

请赐予我一块倒着拨的钟表
给我讲讲你皱纹里的故事多好
陪你养花钓鱼 散步喂鸟
让你抱抱我的小孩该多好

请赐予我一块倒着拨的钟表
让我回到你皱纹的故事多好
陪你回趟家乡,哪怕迢迢
让我知道你的一生,好不好
城门,城门,几丈高

You looked at me for a long time
In your eyes, I can see
You want me to bring you along
I looked at you for a long time
Afraid that on the way there, you’ll
Plead

Every time I go out
You wait for me a long time
As soon as the car pulls up downstairs
You watch for me a long time
All my worries
Are carried away by your tail
Waved away in the wind

I looked at it a long time
Your favorite window
Sunlight shines on your spot
At this time you‘re at the door
Always hoping I’ll take you out for
A walk

I’m still not used to
You not being behind the door
Give my first greeting upon coming home
I still like it
When you nudge me with your head

You just don’t know how to say it
You understand everything about me
You just don’t know how to say it
Inside your heart, there’s only me
You just don’t know how to say it
Inside your heart, there’s only me

你等我好久
车刚到楼下
你守我好久
所有的忧愁
被尾巴带走
摇散在风中

我看了那好久
你最爱的窗口
阳光照着你的窝
每当这时候你在门口
总希望我带你出门
遛遛

我还不习惯
你不在门后
给我回家第一个问候
我还是喜欢
你用头碰碰我

你只是不会说
我的所有你都懂
你只是不会说
你的心里只有我
你只是不会说

Right at 9, the last alarm sounds
Lazily and dazedly extend my back, half awake, half asleep
She’s in a rush, afraid of being late
I accidentally pee in her shoe

I mistakenly think this habit is a sort of mutual understanding
But she gives me a bitter melon face, very angry
Oh a dog’s mission
I still don’t understand it’s meaning

Want to sleep, want to eat my fill
But still have to continue pondering
Why my master
Is not accepting my ingratiation anymore

Is there some kind of medicine
Swallow it whole
And I can share her struggles
I really really want to see her smile
And in passing tell her
Today I didn’t cause a scene

Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
Want to open my mouth but I can’t say anything
Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
No time to do cheap tricks for you

Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
Go out into the world and look around
Don't dodge or hide
If you’re not satisfied, dress like a person and live like a dog

Like to sniff morning flower scent
Like to observe every day’s sunset
This is what I’m like
Don’t unrealistically expect any more human characteristics

But day after day passes
She’s step by step
Discovering her dream
And time passes unwaveringly second by second
The clock hand ticks heavily on my heart

Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
Want to open my mouth but I can’t say anything
Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
Don't want to do cheap tricks for you

Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du lu
Go out into the world and look around
Don't dodge or hide
If you’re not satisfied, dress like a person and live like a dog

九点整最后闹钟响起
伸个懒腰迷迷糊糊,半梦半醒
她慌慌张张,怕来不及
我一不小心尿进她的鞋里

我以为这习惯是种默契
她却给我一张苦瓜脸,好生气
喔一条狗的使命
我大概还不懂得它的意义

想睡觉,想吃饱
但又不得不继续思考
主人因为什么
不再接受我的讨好

有没有一种药
一口吞下
可以分担她的苦恼
我很想很想看她笑
顺带告诉她
今天我没有哭闹

噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
想开口却又讲不来话
噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
没空跟你玩什么烂把戏呀

噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
去外面的世界看一看
你别躲也别藏
不甘心穿得人模活得狗样

喜欢闻早晨的花香
喜欢看每日的夕阳
我就是这样
不奢求更多人类的模样

但一天一天过去了
她也一步一步
发觉自己的梦呀
而时间一秒一秒不停留
指针在心底走得好沉重

噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
想开口却又讲不来话
噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
跟你玩什么烂把戏呀

噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟噜
去外面的世界看一看
你别躲也别藏
不甘心穿得人模活得狗样

Don't need to turn the coil so tightly, treat passersby as scenery
Zoning out is the lesson of the day, getting lost is the goal of the moment
It’s been a good day, just let me chill
Let me face the other stuff when I wake up tomorrow

Rest a spell, let your body take a vacation
Find a coffeeshop to sit for a while
Rest a spell, bad weather’s no biggie
Pretend not to notice, don’t let your mood be hijacked

No need to fight on the weekend, please don’t persist in going against the flow
Heart beats in time with the rhythm in my headphones, getting lost is the goal of the moment yeah

Before afternoon
Is sleepy time
I’m by the innermost bookshelf
Dozing off, staring at the sky

Before afternoon
Is a time of one’s own
I’m in the corner smoking
Blow out mist, 2 to 3 rings

Look, look, look, look
Noon clouds drift slowly
Slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
When will they obscure the brilliant sunlight?

Before afternoon
Is a time of freedom
I’m at a lake with no people
Singing how fresh is the sunlight

Before afternoon
Is a time for dreaming
Clouds can’t hide the autumn warmth
Who’s smiling sweetly in their dream?

Listen, listen, listen, listen
Who’s been singing the whole time?
Softly, softly, softly, softly
As if the autumn day was chirping in your ear

Look, look, look, look
Noon clouds drift slowly
Slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
When will they obscure the brilliant sunlight?
Listen, listen, listen, listen
Who’s been singing the whole time?
Softly, softly
As if the autumn day was chirping in your ear

Before afternoon
Is the mellowest time
Suddenly everything
Fades into pre-afternoon

Chinese lyrics

午后以前
属于困倦的时间
我在书架的最里面
打着瞌睡望着天

午后以前
属于自己的时间
我在角落里抽着烟
吹起云雾两三圈

你看,你看,你看,你看
正午云儿走得缓
好慢,好慢,好慢,好慢
何时遮住日光灿

午后以前
属于自由的时间
我在没有人的湖边
唱着日光好新鲜

午后以前
属于做梦的时间
云也藏不住秋意暖
谁在梦里笑得甜

你听,你听,你听,你听
谁的歌儿唱不停
好轻,好轻,好轻,好轻
像是秋日耳边鸣

你看,你看,你看,你看
正午云儿走得缓
好慢,好慢,好慢,好慢
何时遮住日光灿
你听,你听,你听,你听
谁的歌儿唱不停
好轻 好轻
像是秋日耳边鸣

午后 以前
是最慵懒的时间
突然间 一切都
消散在下午以前

I suddenly get the urge to skip work
Stare into space, be a little lazy
But I also want to ask myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
How can I paint the future?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
Thinking about it, I still don’t get it

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, I really have no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Chinese lyrics

突然很想 不去上班
发一发呆 偷一点懒
但是又要 问我自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我越来越 怀念从前
无忧无虑 美好童年
但是又要 告诉自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我要怎么 画出未来

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我想不明白

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 我真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我越来越 怀念从前
无忧无虑 美好童年
但是又要 告诉自己
是不是要 坚强一点

Hey mama
This world is constantly changing
There’s no way that my life would be exactly the same as yours

Hey mama
Your son has already grown up
Everyone has to walk their own path

Grandpa always says you didn’t have to bear the hardships of war
You always say we didn’t have to experience the Cultural Revolution
We’ll also say that the each generation is damn inferior to the previous one
But when we’re all old, everything under heaven belongs to those born in the 90s

Hey mama
Society always has many different points of view
What if I was gay?
Is it possible you’d look down on me?

In the past Bruno said
The earth revolves around the sun
But those so-called worldly people
Burned him alive

I have no chance of becoming awesome heroes like them
But I must tenaciously walk the path I’ve chosen
Even though I have nothing at all
However like Pavel (protagonist of Soviet novel How the Steel Was Tempered) I’m still totally satisfied (with life)

Mamama, dear mama, North Korean and South Korea, who is right?
Mamama, dear mama, look at North Korean and South Korea, who is wrong?
Mamama, dear mama, why can’t they peacefully get along?

Chinese lyrics

嘿妈妈
这个世界在不停变化
我的生活不可能与你一模一样啊

嘿妈妈
儿子已经长大
每个人的道路总要自己走啊

爷爷总说你们没吃过打仗的苦
你们总说我们没经过文化大革命吧
我们也会说真他妈一代不如一代啊
可是等我们全都老了,天下还是90后的

嘿妈妈
世间总有很多不同的看法
如果我是同性恋呢?
难道你会歧视我吗?

曾经布努诺说
地球围着太阳转的
可是那些所谓有经验的人们
却将他活活烧死啦

我无法成为他们那么牛B的英雄
可是自己选择的道路总要顽强得走
虽然现在我一无所有
可是我却感觉像保尔一样充实满足

妈妈妈,亲爱的妈妈,你说朝鲜和韩国到底谁是对的?
妈妈妈,亲爱的妈妈,你说朝鲜和韩国到底谁是错的?
妈妈妈,亲爱的妈妈,你说他们为什么就不能和平相处呢?

When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Be good darling, sleep darling
Be good darling, sleep darling

You’re very loud, you have many anxieties
For example when I’m far away, have I eaten well?
Who’s cleaning the room, will the kid fall down??
I’m swiping my phone saying, I got it, I got it
Laughing while you look at me, wondering why I’m so childish
Can’t do anything, how can I take good care of your grandson?
Every day the conversations are about the same
Gabby, you’re too gabby, you repeat everything you say

Once you become a mother, you become strong, no challenge is too tough
Just like when you left our hometown to earn money for me
Didn’t earn much, bought everything for me
You’re very skinny and weak, did your utmost to protect me

When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling
When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling

Yesterday you pointed out to me the age spots on your face
You said back in the day you were beautiful, suitors piled up like a mountain
You always love to tell old stories, and always carry a grudge against someone who mistreated me, on this point you’re very stubborn
You said my daughter will finally understand the pain of being a mother, when I went into labor you were far away crying uncontrollably
Married too far away, hard to reunite, forget it, don’t talk it, it’s fate
Paid too much for clothes, food is almost cold
Won money at mahjong, don’t bother me when I lose money
Not sleeping well, sleeping too little, holding your grandson singing the folk songs of my youth

Be good darling, sleep darling
Sleepiness slowly takes hold, bad guys stay away
My darling loves to sleep

Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling

Never send me to the airport, just ask that when I land I report all is well
The night that I left home, you couldn’t sleep until dawn
They say that when children go far way, mother won't stop worrying until the family is reunited
Hold the child’s hand, teach him how to walk the right path in the future
Sometimes there’s shouting and chaos, sometimes there’s crying and laughter
You always say everything’s for my good, you always say in this world only mama is good
Say mama, say mama, quickly quickly learn to say mama
The responsibility for this title is so heavy, only when I become you can I really experience it

When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Be good darling, sleep darling
Be good darling, sleep darling

When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Be good darling, sleep darling
Be good darling, sleep darling

Be good darling, sleep darling
Be good darling, sleep darling

Title: 当我成了你

Chinese lyrics

当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
乖乖命命,睡觉命
乖乖命命,睡觉命

你很吵,你有很多烦恼
比如我在远方 有没有吃饱
房间谁打扫,孩子会不会跌倒
我滑着手机说知道啦知道
看着我笑,说我怎么还像孩子这么小
什么都不会,怎么能把你的孙子照顾好
每一天的对话都差不多
啰嗦,嫌你啰嗦,什么事都重复说

为母则强,没有什么困难
就像当年你为我奔走他乡
赚的不多,什么都买给我
你很瘦弱,拼了命得保护我

当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命
当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命

昨天你指给我 看脸上的老人斑
说当年你很漂亮,追求的人堆成山
你总爱讲当年的故事,还念着谁对我不好,这点你很固执
你说女儿终会知道当妈的苦,当我临盆你在远方不停得哭
嫁太远,难团圆,算啦,不说啦,都是缘
衣服买贵了,饭菜快凉了
麻将赢钱了,输钱都别惹
睡眠不好,睡得太少,晚上抱着孙子唱着我童年的歌谣

乖乖命命,睡觉命
睡意渐渐就来了,贼仔贼公都别来
我阿命爱去睡觉眠

哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命

从来不送我去机场,只要降落报个平安
我离家的那个夜晚,你又失眠到天亮
都说儿行千里母担忧,欢聚一堂才能解千愁
拉着孩子的小手,教他未来的道路到底该怎么走
有时候有吵有闹,有时候有哭有笑
你总说一切都是为我好,你总说世上只有妈妈好
叫妈妈,叫妈妈,快点快点学叫妈妈
这个称呼责任多重大,当我成了你才能真的体会她

当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
乖乖命命,睡觉命
乖乖命命,睡觉命

当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
乖乖命命,睡觉命
乖乖命命,睡觉命

乖乖命命,睡觉命
乖乖命命,睡觉命
